Celestial Embrace

by Max Bouillet

Kiss me wicked
and let us dance into shadow…
until we fade into the
mouth of night.

Let us fuse with moonbeams
and make love in the stars
until jealous angels
steal passion’s wings
and we fall gently
in the salty waves
of moon drenched seas.

and then,

kiss me softly
and let me lose myself
in you.

Imagery sparkling with romantic "fireworks". Sweet and tender. Editorial note: I think you mean "lose myself in you". :)

I am going to repeat a word used already -- Passionate, extremely passionate. Also, very sensual. Good job, I like it :)

This spectacular piece is both ethereal and provocative. Steamy stuff, Max. Peace...

Ohhhh, how pretty.

A fascinating glimpse beyond the scenes - especially the ascension, and the unbalanced finale. Nice dream :)

Celestial indeed,Max. Beautiful write.

More than any other poem I've seen of yours, this one leaves me melting and yearning for that sort of love. You have truly described romance without the usual cheese and knowing winks.

wow! the embrace of true love....well done Max

Posted by Kristina Woodhill on 09/18/08 at 07:50 PM

Lovely images here - my fav is "moon drenched seas". Definitely some nice fusion going on here.

Posted by Charles E Minshall on 09/19/08 at 06:54 PM
